On December 7, local time, Seattle District Court Judge Richard Jones agreed with the U.S. Department of Justice's proposition, arguing that Changpeng Zhao should remain in the United States until February 23, 2024, because if he leaves the United States, he risks absconding on bail.

The European Extreme Telescope (ELT), which is being built in Chile's Atacama Desert, is expected to be completed in 2028

It will be the world's largest optical telescope, with a primary mirror diameter of 39.3 meters, spliced together by 798 small hexagonal lenses, and a light collection area of 978 square meters, which will be able to gather more light for clearer images, more advanced than any current optical telescope, and will change the study of exoplanets, black holes, dark matter, and the early universe. Its planned successor, the Overwhelmingly Large Telescope (OLT), was shelved in the 2000s due to complexity and cost, and the OLT's primary mirror will be up to 100 meters in diameter. Many of the optical telescopes currently under construction or planned elsewhere are not as advanced as ELT. The giant Magellan telescope, a combination of seven 8.4-meter-diameter lenses, has a primary mirror diameter of 24.5 meters and is expected to be built in the 2030s, with only one-third the light-gathering capacity of an ELT. The telescope, which is planned to be built in Hawaii with a diameter of 30 meters and is smaller than the ELT, was halted due to a dispute with the original inhabitants over the construction site of Mount Mona Kea.

New research suggests a new possible explanation for Hubble tension

A recent study has proposed that the Hubble tension – a difference in the measurement of the expansion rate of the universe – could be solved with another MOND theory of gravity. The theory is that the observed differences are caused by local changes in the density of matter. Research from the Universities of Bonn and St Andrews suggests a new possible explanation for the Hubble strain.

Scientists use ultrasound to guide the microbubble robot through complex cerebral blood vessels

Researchers have developed a bubble microrobot that uses ultrasound to guide it through tiny and complex cerebral blood vessels. The miniature vehicle has been successfully tested in mice and has the potential to be a means of precise drug delivery to treat diseases such as brain cancer and stroke.

Studies have shown that cosmic fission may have played a role in the formation of heavy elements

New research suggests that cosmic fission may have played a role in the formation of heavy elements. Analysis of ancient stars has shown that there is a correlation between light metal and rare earth nuclei, suggesting that superheavy nuclei are produced beyond the known periodic table. This discovery confirms the theory of cosmic fission and shows the existence of elements with an atomic mass of 260, expanding our understanding of the universe.

Scientists at the University of Cambridge identified the mRNA patterns that cause off-target effects and found a way to fix it

Researchers have found that chemical modifications to synthetic messenger RNA used in therapeutics can cause cellular machines to misread its instructions, resulting in unexpected immune responses. Importantly, they also found a solution to this problem.

Researchers have reported a new Spectre attack known as SLAM, exploiting these mechanisms to bypass pointer validity checks

Modern CPUs have far more 64-bit pointer addressing space than needed, so major CPU vendors offer a mechanism to use some of the address bits to store other data: Intel uses linear address mask (LAM), AMD uses high-bit address ignorance, and Arm uses top byte ignorance. Researchers have reported a new Spectre attack known as SLAM, exploiting these mechanisms to bypass pointer validity checks. For SLAM attacks, Intel plans to release software guidelines in the future, Linux engineers have developed patches to disable LAM by default until the software guidelines are released, ARM has made similar statements, and AMD has stated that the existing Spectre v2 patch will address SLAM attacks.
